Terry Smiley said he was disgusted by Jaguars players who took a knee during the national anthem in London last month, and he decided he needed to make his voice heard. So Smiley hired a pilot to fly his banner, which read 'BE AMERICAN. BOYCOTT THE JAGS AND THE NFL,' over EverBank Field on Sunday before the Jaguars faced off against the Los Angeles Rams.

“I was given a really good race car tonight and it shows. When you are given good equipment, it just makes life so much easier,We definitely had a top-three car last night and I just gave it away all night, but tonight we made up for it. The guys kept tuning this car as the night went on and it ended up being a really great race car. I can’t thank Bernie [Stuebgen] enough for what he’s done for me to get here. I didn’t have a ride and he gave me a shot. Hopefully we can run this car a little more next year.” Joey Saldana winning Eldora Speedway All Stars

Myself and many I talk to will probably never return. My days as a Steeler fan are over. Mr Rooney {Art Sr} would never have put up with such disrespect for our nation and its fallen.
